One of my customers is in her early seventies and walks half marathons all over the place. She's doing one in every state (and DC) to be exact. She always has a nice medal to show me for just finishing. I don't think she cares where she comes in. She used to do them by herself, but now she's got a son and daughter that go with her depending.

My first walk I came in fourth...from last. The second walk I came in 20th from last. My co-workers only do the 5k and they are all younger than me...and they run itAnything I do is worth it and good for me. I really don't want another heart attack. The weather is so nice now I can start walking everywhere. Soon enough it will be too hot for me.

And I need to get my new walking shoes broken in...

Good for you, PF!

In a foul mood today, but my mood somewhat improved after I took the loppers out and whacked out all the little scrub trees in the wildflower garden. The stinging nettles aren't up yet, so it didn't hurt.

I have been thumbing through some old cookbooks that I bought recently at the local flea market.

I found a recipe that I had never heard of before, it was a pumpkin meringue pie. A traditional pumpkin pie but only the yolks were used in the pie filling. The egg whites were beaten with sugar to make a meringue that was added to the pie after it was baked and then run back into a hot oven to brown and set the meringue.

I started to google to see if other recipes existed and there they were patiently waiting for me!

I am not really amazed at how ignorant I am.

I am amazed at how much information is available on the internet if you only know what to ask!

Taking it easy for a while. The Headhunter (Ophthalmologist) one of them anyways was actually a tremendous help they other day. Were getting very close as to the reasons why I'm having terrible vision problems lately. They've been increasing to about 3-4 times a week lasting over an hour per episode. They can happen at any time, even when I'm doing nothing at all. My F/P had suggested that I see a specialist asap. He really meant today don't mess around.

I have one more test to do a field vision. It won't hurt at all like my last visit. I swear I couldn't sit here and read anything without it hurting my eyes. Feeling better today.

Apparently, it's looking like I have been suffering with Ocular Migraines.
Having one right now. Forgive any and all type o's. I can't see. You guys aren't here.
My F/P thinks it's because I've quit taking my B/P meds ( I was being over medicated)
He's found me a new Cardio Dr. One that he won't hesitate to to confront when it comes to my treatment. I think once all that is back under control things will get better. Until then I've been grounded.

No more strenuos work, I have been over doing it alot lately. No driving. Try and stay stress free. If your having another do what you've been doing. Sit down, take a nap until it passes.

I think I qualify for a very special card now.

Munky.

Pumpkin meringue sounds good, B!

So, what is your vision like with these migraines? Do you get a headache with them?

When I get one, I see double, even with one eye closed. I use to get a different kind, where I saw pretty, rainbow colours. I haven't had that one in years.
